If you’ve been a little laze about decorating for the holidays and are ISO inspiration, you’re in luck! Traditional Home recently invited me to deck the halls and today I’m sharing my tips and tricks for creating a stylish Christmas with Frontgate (spoiler alert: expect lots of bubblegum pink ornaments + Palm Springs-infused decor!). Check out the video below + a chance to win $10,000 to Frontgate so you can create all the holiday magic your stylish heart desires!
Inspiration started with Slim Aarons, Audrey Hepburn, and the colorful doors of Palm Springs.
It’s no surprise how much I love the candy-colored doors of Palm Springs.
And Slim Aarons and Audrey Hepburn are my forever inspirations.
So it only seemed fitting that they be my jumping off point when it came to decorating for Christmas!
When I spotted these candy-colored ornaments, it was a no-brainer what my color palette would be!
Press play to watch the video of my inspiration process and how it all came together!
I am a big fan of white, gold and happy Palm Springs hues like pink, yellow and aqua, so it made perfect sense that that would be my holiday palette.
Tip: Make your own rules and don’t be afraid to think beyond red and green!
Marrying palms to pines feels unexpected, yet makes total sense in Palm Springs where from the palm tree-lined streets, we see the snow-covered mountain in the distance.
And why shouldn’t you have a palm frond wreath?
Pines shouldn’t have all the fun.
Plus, these wreaths could stay up year-round!
Don’t be afraid to shake things up!
The only rule…
There are no rules!
It’s Christmas — have fun!
LIVING ROOM HOLIDAY DECOR:
I also extended the palette to my dining room, where white, gold and blue set the scene.
Gold adds a glamorous touch, from the plates to the placemats to the gold flatware.
I hope you enjoyed a peek at my holiday decorating!
HOLIDAY TABLETOP DECOR:
On table: Donatella dinnerware, Donatella blue drinkware, blue scalloped placemats, gold placemats, blue napkins, napkin rings, white napkins, gold flatware, salad servers, tiered server, tablecloth, dining chairs
